Toronto, ON – March 21, 2019 – Following the announcement of their new full-length album, Trapline, which is set for release on May 10th, award-winning hip-hop duo, Snotty Nose Rez Kids, share the record’s lead single, Creator Made An Animal. The track premiered via The FADER, who praised its “energetic defiance that we urgently need”. Listen to Creator Made An Animal on Spotify and Apple Music, and watch the music video here.
“Creator Made An Animal is our way of paying homage to the place that we call home as our spirits awaken and our people rise up,” the band comments. “Creator Made An Animal carries an aggressive and assertive energy that imitates the way society portrays Indigenous people and People of Colour across Turtle Island. Our ancestors were stereotyped as savages, and we are often regarded as the pissed-off generation who haven’t gotten over what colonization has done to our lands and to our people. Through stylish delivery, we proclaim ourselves as the Father 7th Generation and let the world know that we aren’t changing for anyone. The future is ours. We are powerful as human beings and it’s integral that we respect the knowledge that was passed down from our ancestors. Many of us also carry their pain, but every single one of us carry their power. Embrace that power, stay true to that power and to yourself!”
Trapline brings about a refreshing energy and new sound for the group, while continuing to display their blend of trap beats with woven lyricism that challenge Indigenous stereotypes, and assert their place in the hip-hop landscape. Coinciding with the release, SNRK will embark on the Trapline Tour Pt. 1, which kicks off in May, and includes debut performances in Europe, along with Canadian dates from coast to coast. Full details can be found below and tickets are available here.
Snotty Nose Rez Kids are the combined talents of Yung Trybez and Young D, hailing from the Haisla Nation, "The People of the Snow.” Their music is best described as thought-provoking club bangers, and their live shows prove it – audiences will dance and sweat, but they’ll leave with new knowledge.
Formed by Trybez and D in 2016, Snotty Nose Rez Kids was born out of a life-long friendship between the two emcees, growing up together, and deciding on music as their outlet for expression. SNRK dropped two albums in 2017: their debut self-titled LP, and The Average Savage, just nine months later. Snotty Nose Rez Kids set the stage for establishing the duo as hard-hitting lyricists tackling rich subject matter. Garnering fans from all over, SNRK began touring and proving they were not only talented musicians, but true entertainers, with their energy-filled performances creating a quick demand for them in B.C.
Their follow-up, The Average Savage, took them to new lengths. In 2018, they toured Canada, the U.S. and Australia in support of the album, while their single, Savages, spent over 20 weeks on the Indigenous Music Countdown. The album landed them a nomination for Best Hip Hop Album at the Indigenous Music Awards, a win for Best Hip Hop Artist at the Western Canadian Music Awards, a place on the Short List for the Polaris Music Prize, and a JUNO nomination for Indigenous Music Album of the Year.
